Walnut flat bowls with epoxy inlay

Using my new circle cutting jig, I wanted to turn a couple bowls from a slab remanent that I had and try adding some epoxy inlay along the rim. The bowls aren’t nesting, but it was a good project to work through the process of trying to create matching profiles on two separate items…something that’s new to me. I turned them both using a face plate, then attached a chuck to a turned tenon on each for the long haul. I had these bowls on and off the lathe several times. I’m not thrilled with the proportions of the bowls themselves, but I’m pretty happy with the overall outcome.

Sanded to 1800g, then Dr. Kirk’s Scratch Free. Finished with homemade friction polish.

I saw that one! It was actually one of the projects that peaked my interest in the style. I’ve done a fair amount of epoxy inlays on projects, but I’m just getting into turning so this is all new to me. Thanks!
